The Office of Sustainability and the Lehigh Bookstore are happy to kick off the new year with the launch of the EcoCoin Program. The EcoCoin Program gives Lehigh Bookstore customers the ability to go bagless while philanthropically supporting student organizations on campus. Each time a customer says “no” to a single-use plastic bag, they will receive an EcoCoin which they can use to support student organizations. EcoCoins have monetary value and the funds raised will be donated to the selected student organizations.
We are pleased to announce that funds will be raised for the Eco-Rep Leadership Program and Outing Club during the 2022 calendar year. The recipients were selected after being nominated by the student body and voted for by members of the Undergraduate Student Senate and Lehigh Sustainability Council last semester.
